Balaji Srinivasan, angel investor and Former CTO of Coinbase, gave a keynote at SmartCon regarding "Cryptoinformation"—sources of definitive truth created by decentralized oracles. He argued that blockchain technology and oracles can separate facts from narratives, enabling a transparent world where information can be verified in real-time through a digital ledger, combating misinformation and censorship. Balaji also announced an initiative in collaboration with Chainlink supporting the development of a censorship-resistant, decentralized inflation index that accurately represents global inflation rates. The winners will get a $100k investment from Balaji and a $100k grant from the Chainlink Grant Program.
